We Mean Green Fund

What is the We Mean Green Fund?

The University of North Texas’ We Mean Green Fund (WMGF) is a student-funded resource created to support new campus environmental sustainability projects that are developed and led by students, staff, and faculty. The WMGF depends on collaborative campus partnerships between individuals, departments, and organizations to advance campus sustainability efforts.
